I am supposed to be out the door about 5 minuntes ago when I get to curious to click on vimeo (tip of the blog hat to David Weinberger, thanks for making me later for dinner ;-)

In a nutshell, it looks like a filckr for video, and it semms there are a lot of other folks moving “theirmedia” in this direction.

What caught my attentions was that vimeo is taking tags applied to video clips, and assembling them dynamically into QuickTime flicks, such as the concert movies vimeo show.

Ironically I had suggested something like this in the early pow-wows last summer when we met as the advisory board for the 2005 New Media Consortium Horizon project. My idea was not exactly what vimeo shows in tis beta, but I thought of something like a wiki for video content- where one could collaboratively mix and match and edit video content, much like a wiki (There was a photo wiki out there, lost rack of it…). No one backed my idea, including me.

Anyhow, it’s late in the day, but I am piqued by vimeo….
